… TO DURHAM UNIVERSITY AND OUR DISTINCTIVE BA SPORT, EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY PROGRAMME. Studying Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity involves engaging with issues and subjects ranging from the development of elite athletes to encouraging participation amongst young people for the first time. The capacity of sport to touch our lives means that it is used positively to address issues such as obesity, crime, and community development, while also reflecting social issues such as doping, violence and inequality. Durham offers the ideal opportunity to study Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity. Here are some of the reasons why … •

Our degree programme is consistently well ranked in the university guides, with outstanding levels of satisfaction in the National Student Survey.

Students value the broad range of topics within our programme, together with the options to choose modules according to their own interests and aspirations.

All teaching is informed by cutting-edge research and you will be taught by leading academics with internationally recognised expertise in sport, exercise, health and well-being.

The Durham experience leads to employability Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity graduates are exceptionally well positioned to start diverse careers across sport, health and other industries.

Durham has firmly established itself as the university where you can effectively combine academic and sporting excellence as well as participate in the country’s largest programme of intra-mural sport.

Durham and its university is a unique place to study and live combining the facilities you would expect of a thriving city with the beauty and history of the famous Castle and Cathedral – some of the world’s finest architecture.

The University’s collegiate system offers students far more than just a place to live – each of our colleges offer a vibrant, supportive community that is full of opportunities to get involved in a huge range of sporting, arts, and volunteering

activities.

OUR PROGRAMME Our degree programme offers the opportunity to engage in multi-disciplinary study of sport, exercise and physical activity, drawing on knowledge from across the social and natural sciences. Throughout your three years of study, you will constantly engage in applying academic concepts and research to real-world practices and issues in sport, exercise and physical activity.


7

Our degree programme is made up of an array of modules aligned with the following six subject areas:

SOCIOLOGY OF SPORT We use a sociological lens to provide an insight into the signiďŹ cance of sport, helping you to think about how sport can impact upon society, and how society can impact upon sport. We seek to explain how sport drives economies, dominates the media, inuences politics, and how it contributes to local and national pride. We examine how sport can affect our ideas about masculinity and femininity, social class and wealth, race and ethnicity, ability and disability, age and aging. We also study why sport is an arena for aggression and violence, fraud and corruption, doping and other forms of cheating.

SPORTS DEVELOPMENT AND POLICY What approaches can improve participation in sport and increase success in international sport and the Olympics? Can sport effectively contribute to the development of young people or address social issues such as crime, educational attainment and social exclusion? Studying sports development and policy involves grappling with answers to such questions and using academic understanding to explore reallife policies, programmes and examples from local, national and international contexts. You will develop your own analytic skills to identify the challenges facing sport organisations, to consider why different sports development objectives are prioritised and funded, and to evaluate the effectiveness of current policies and approaches.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND HEALTH

SPORT AND EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY

With obesity and sedentary lifestyles of global concern, we believe it is vital to look beyond competitive, organised sports and consider the potential contribution of all forms of physical activity to health and well-being. We examine how active individuals and sections of the population are and consider how we can further understand the complex reasons for inactivity. This helps determine how we might intervene to make a population more physically active. We also consider how nutritional factors are linked to our health and what the current recommendations are for physical activity and diet, both in the UK and further afield.

We need to understand how the human body works in order to understand how it reacts to sport and exercise. We begin by examining basic anatomy and the main body systems, as well as cell, blood and muscle function. With this knowledge, we can start to investigate what happens when we exercise. Small-group laboratory classes give you ‘hands-on’ experience of how to measure and assess respiration, metabolism, body composition, and cardiovascular systems. You will learn how to measure blood pressure and lung capacity and how to test blood and urine samples from fellow students before, during and after exercise. You may even find yourself taking an icebath!

THE WORK IN THE DISSERTATION MODULE IS OF A PARTICULAR HIGH STANDARD AND THE STUDENTS ARE COMPLETING SOME EXCELLENT AND INTERESTING PROJECTS. IN PART, THE SUCCESS OF THIS MODULE APPEARS TO BE AS A RESULT OF RESEARCH ACTIVE STAFF INFORMING THE CURRICULUM AND THE STUDENT LEARNING EXPERIENCE WITH THEIR RESEARCH ACTIVITIES. REPORT OF EXTERNAL EXAMINER FOR BA SPORT, EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

SPORT AND EXERCISE PSYCHOLOGY In psychological modules, we explore thoughts and feelings about sport or exercise, and how these influence both participation and performance. When studying sport psychology, we consider how individuals and teams develop and excel. We cover a range of topics including: motivation; personality; anxiety and stress; injuries; group processes; and psychological training. In exercise psychology, we explore how we can increase population activity levels, covering topics including: barriers to participation; public health intervention strategies; and exercise and mental health. Across these topics we apply research to real-world problems, so you can experience working with both elite athletes and sedentary individuals.

RESEARCH METHODS Becoming an independent generator of knowledge, capable of identifying, investigating and solving real world problems, is vital for your preparation for professional or postgraduate life. Through research-orientated modules in each year of the degree programme, we support you to gain skills and experience in a wide range of qualitative and quantitative methods used in the natural and social sciences to analyse and understand varied aspects across sport, exercise and physical activity. Your ongoing engagement in high quality research culminates in your final year dissertation in which you will be supported to undertake independent research on a topic in sport, exercise or physical activity of your choice.

Within these six subject areas, specific modules and course content are refined on an ongoing basis to reflect the latest employment trends in the sports industry, cutting-edge research, and student interest. To view the full, current range of Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity modules across all three years, please visit: www.durham.ac.uk/ sass/undergraduate/basport/

STRUCTURING THE PROGRAMME FOR OUR STUDENTS In the first year, you will develop your understanding across all six subject areas through a varied suite of compulsory modules. Teaching will take account of the diverse sporting and educational backgrounds that students bring to the programme and will begin the process of challenging you to develop to your full academic potential. In the second and third years, you have flexibility to choose from a broad menu of optional modules. It’s up to you if you wish to continue to study modules across the full range of subject areas or specialise in a narrower set of specific subject areas and academic disciplines.

“I PARTICULARLY LIKE THE MULTIDISCIPLINARY NATURE OF THIS COURSE AND HOW FLEXIBLE IT IS IN CATERING TO STUDENTS’ INTERESTS. FOR EXAMPLE, IF STUDENTS WOULD LIKE TO ADOPT THE MORE SOCIAL SCIENCE ROUTE, THEY CAN TAILOR THEIR CHOSEN MODULES TO BE IN LINE WITH THAT. LIKEWISE IF THEY WERE MORE INCLINED TO A NATURAL SCIENCE APPROACH, THEY CAN AMEND THEIR CHOICES ACCORDINGLY IN YEARS 2 AND 3”. SAMANTHA SINGHAM (BA SPORT, EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY STUDENT)

Your choice of option modules in both second and third years can also include an ‘open module’ from another programme or department. Choosing an open module can complement your desired career path and students from our programme have previously selected modules in, for example, Business, Education, Languages, Geography, Politics, or Natural Sciences.

STUDY ABROAD OPPORTUNITY Students admitted to the BA Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity have the opportunity to apply to extend their studies to include an additional year studying at one of our international partner universities. Previously, some of our students have studied in the USA, Canada, and New Zealand.

Our students on the Community Placement module, L-R: Steven Wilson, Amy Ellerker, Rachel Gibson, Sophie Bingham, Louise Jeffrey, John Ellmer

SPORT IN THE COMMUNITY PLACEMENT Sport in the Community Placement is an optional module in the third year of the Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity degree programme. The module provides outstanding opportunities to develop the types of vocational experiences and skills that are highly valued by employers. We offer a varied range of placements each year, with opportunities in school, youth, community and high performance sport. Through these placements, students have the chance to work closely and develop contacts with host organisations including local School Sport Partnerships, Durham County Council Culture and Sport division and Team Durham’s community outreach section. All placements enable students to put knowledge gained throughout their degree programme into practice. As formal applications are required for all

placements, support is provided to develop effective CVs and letters of application. Through the module students also develop an evidence-based portfolio that demonstrates the acquisition of key professional skills and competencies. The placement provided me with the opportunity to work professionally within Team Durham. We were entrusted with our own ‘Pop Lacrosse’ event, hosting over 100 local school children, and, quite rightly, there would have been no one there to pick up the pieces had we failed to deliver. This was the pressure we needed in order to ensure that we excelled. The placement enhanced my teamwork and leadership skills and I took great pride in ensuring that all team members felt valued throughout. Sophie Bingham (BA Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity Graduate)

A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF A DURHAM SPORT, EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY STUDENT BY WILL MOULTON (3RD YEAR) MONDAY Spent the morning working on my dissertation. Found some really interesting research articles that discuss how music can help athletes control their mood before competing. On a similar theme, this afternoon’s Applied Sport Psychology lecture looked at different mental techniques athletes can employ to help them stay positive through injury rehabilitation. Definitely going to try one or two out! Met up with my Media, Sport and Society assignment group afterwards to start putting together the clips we’ve recorded for our sport documentary looking at perceptions of male cheerleaders - even if I do say so myself, it’s looking pretty cool!

TUESDAY Started with a Physiology lecture on the different energy systems involved in anaerobic activity, then an Applied

Sport Psychology seminar in which we looked at how psychologists should behave when interacting with adolescents. Cracked on with my dissertation again this afternoon before a Media, Sport and Society lecture on how journalists and reporters directly encode specific messages into their articles. As I want to be a sport journalist myself, I found this very insightful - it’s amazing how the media influence our perceptions of sport! This was followed by an intense three hour practice with Durham Divas - the university cheerleading squad - as we build towards the national championships on Sunday.

WEDNESDAY Whilst some of my course mates were off representing Team Durham in various BUCS fixtures, I met up with my Media, Sport and Society group in the morning to do some more editing on our documentary. Coached my college cheerleading squad before preparing for the


15

presentation I am giving in tomorrow’s Sport, Crime and Deviance seminar looking at the problem of ‘white collar’ crime in sport. Found some time to write a new post for my sports blog, discussing problems surrounding the recognition of women as athletes in their own right. The evening consisted of a really fun social with the Divas after watching Durham’s 1st XV rugby team annihilate their opposition, despite the pretty awful weather…

THURSDAY After successfully delivering my presentation, we had a really interesting Sport, Crime and Deviance lecture that looked at doping in sport. Also went to a Nutrition seminar which was really helpful for our upcoming essay on the role of diet in the prevention of osteoporosis. Managed to proofread and publish the blog post I wrote yesterday. So far it’s received a really positive response, with someone thanking me for highlighting some of the issues sportswomen so commonly endure. Finished the day with another tough Divas training session, but we’re looking really good for Sunday!

FRIDAY A Physiology lab to start the day! Only at university could you be asked to work one of your friends to exhaustion on a treadmill at 9am in the morning before taking blood samples from them! The Nutrition lecture that followed it was fascinating: we learned how effective milk can be at helping to build and repair muscles after exercise. Again something to try myself! Had another productive session on my dissertation. Up to 3000 words now. Only 7000 to go… Then a really enjoyable training session with my college cheer squad; it’s amazing how much they’ve come on this year and I cannot wait to watch them compete themselves next weekend. Had a round at the bar afterwards as a reward for our efforts!

SATURDAY Spent the morning reading for next week’s lectures and seminars before a rehearsal with my college jazz band for our upcoming gig. Then went to watch my housemate in the inter-collegiate women’s basketball final. Unfortunately they lost, but it was a great occasion with a huge turnout. Early night because tomorrow is going to be a long day!

SUNDAY WE SMASHED THE COMP! Cannot describe how proud I am to compete with the Divas; we have an absolutely amazing squad and I feel honoured to be a part of it. To think, when I first came to Durham I never even thought cheerleading was a sport - all I wanted to do was play cricket - and now, here I am, winning national championships! Consequently no studying today; I feel as though I deserved a day off!

YOUR SPORTING LIFE AT DURHAM Few universities are as successful as Durham in enabling students to combine sporting and academic excellence. Our colleagues in Team Durham provide opportunities across Sport Performance and Leadership, Participation, and Community Sport Development – all underpinned by a philosophy of allowing exceptional people to do exceptional things.

SPORT PERFORMANCE AND LEADERSHIP The University is consistently ranked at the very top of the BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) national leagues. This reflects the exceptional professional coaching and athletic support structure available to all of our top student athletes. Programmes are tailored to individual requirements and athletes have access to a wide range of support services including strength and conditioning training, injury support, nutritional guidance and lifestyle support. Incoming students who are performing at the highest level are eligible to apply for a Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship, which, providing Scholars remain in good standing, provides financial support throughout all three years of study.

PARTICIPATION One of the key attractions of Durham University is the collegiate structure, and this is very much the case when it comes to sport. Through Durham’s College Sport programme there are opportunities for male and female students to participate every week, throughout the year, at various levels in a wide variety of different sports. There are over 500 college teams, so you have numerous opportunities to try new sports as well as continue competing in those that you have played before. Participation in College Sport can be competitive but is always friendly, and so provides a sense of belonging to many students - something that is often very important at the start of a student’s university life.


19

COMMUNITY SPORT DEVELOPMENT The third strand of the Team Durham’s work is the extensive Community Sport Development programme which offers coaching and outreach activities to schools and community groups across the local region and internationally. Sporting activities are used to make a difference to people’s lives, and particular work has been undertaken to engage looked after children, people with disabilities and learning disorders, vulnerable women and youth offenders. The variety of volunteering opportunities that are available to our students in these programmes are ideal for gaining valuable experience and skills, as well as recognised coaching and officiating qualifications. Through the Team Durham programme, many Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity students have also had the exceptional opportunity to volunteer each summer with organisations in Zambia that use sport to improve the lives of young people.

“THE COMBINATION OF OUTSTANDING ACADEMIC TEACHING AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTINUE TO PLAY NATIONAL LEAGUE HOCKEY MADE DURHAM MY OBVIOUS CHOICE. WINNING THE BUCS HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIP, WHILST GAINING A FIRST IN MY DEGREE, ARE ACHIEVEMENTS I AM EXTREMELY PROUD OF AND DURHAM GAVE ME THE CHANCE TO DO BOTH! I COULDN’T SPEAK MORE HIGHLY OF DURHAM OR THE DEGREE - I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT!” LUCY THAYER (BA SPORT, EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY GRADUATE)
